10-year-old rape victim unknowingly gives birth in India

10-year-old rape victim unknowingly gives birth in India”

A 10-year-old rape victim was forced to give birth after she was denied an abortion by India's Supreme Court.

Earlier, in the 10-year-old's case, while expressing its inability to intervene on her behalf, the Supreme Court had strongly urged the Centre to set up permanent medical boards in all States so that women, especially child rape victims, could receive expedient access to medical care.

The girl's family previously found out she was pregnant after she began feeling stomach pains. "Nothing has been paid so far to her", Ms. Jaising, who represents the interests of the girl, submitted. Indian law does not allow for abortions past 20 weeks of gestation unless there is a threat to the mother's health. Her parents told her that she needed surgery for a kidney stone problem, and refused to allow medical professionals to tell their child the truth, according to Harish.

"[The] first verdict the Supreme Court made was that the pregnancy can not be terminated at this stage based on the opinions of the medical board", Srivastava said. The unidentified girl, whose uncle was arrested after she accused him of raping her several times over the last seven months, is said to be in good condition, BBC News reported. "We will issue notice to the Chandigarh administration", the Bench said. The country's Supreme Court did not find an exception for her case.

The parents of the 10-year old girl, are now looking for ways to put the baby up for adoption as they're anxious about the stigma. The 10-year-old girl was already pregnant for over 25 weeks when her pregnancy was finally brought to authorities' attention, ultimately leading to the court's decision to deny the young girl an abortion.
